This should be big news but it is not even mentioned in passing by the networks. Why?
Up until now it has been mostly food processing plants that have mysteriously caught fire and burned down; and there have been many of these in the past year. Shouts of sabotage are heard all the time now.
Okay so these have been put down to attempts by oligarchs to dominate the food supply chain.
Put into context the idea is not an absurd one when we consider the uber-wealthy have been buying up thousands of acres of prime farmland.
And just recently there has been Freeport.
Freeport is one of the US’s largest liquefied natural gas plants’ with exports making up 20% of that; but wait there is more.
The plant brings in $7.4 Billion in revenue per annum; now that is a lot of income, with a huge amount of oil shipped to Europe.
What is more this plant was supposed to be the answer to Europe’s divestment from Russia and its gas, let that sink in; now it is gone.
Here is what we know.
The explosion occurred at 11:40 a.m. on Quintana Island; 65 miles south of Houston and caused a fire that sent black smoke billowing into the air; and was felt dozens of miles away.
On the strength of this news gas spot prices in the UK jumped more than 30 percent.
So what is going on here, this event appears to support Russian interests against that of Europe and the US; but does it really?
Yet mums the word; they don’t want the public to know. Like a blink and you miss it type of thing.
Is this just another game being played out between two super powers for advantage, that just so happen to present themselves in public at least; as sworn enemies?
Well time will tell.
Update; another food processing plant goes up in flames. Stevens Point Journal reports that a fire ripped through a Pizza making plant in Wisconsin just yesterday.
